Young Ritual




Artist Information

Singer/Songwriter Dylan Grantham writes very specific songs. A lyrical descendant of Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, Conor Oberst, believing that what makes beautiful art is leaving a part of yourself out in the open. Love, loss, and shame–those are universal experiences that we may not always want to talk about, but we can’t avoid. Young Ritual’s newest release “You Can Be Beautiful, Too”, was recorded in Grantham’s dining room. Using one mic, left to his own compulsive nature, he created music that he has to stand by, because to abandon it would be to abandon himself. We grow out of our discomfort, and we are changing every single day. Young Ritual aims to record that progress through art. Just follow your footprints.
